Obituary in The Pauline:
William Hilder Gregson entered College in 1895, and graduated in 1898. He enlisted in the A.I.F., and left Australia as a private, but was afterwards promoted to sergeant. During the fighting in France last November he was badly wounded, and left in a shell-crater. After the battle, stretcher-bearers were sent out to bring him in, but neither they nor Sergeant Gregson were ever seen again.
